The non-manned roulette machine, "Roulette Revolution" has been shut down at the Ameristar Kansas city for about two weeks now. The rumors are that due to an inherent glitch, the manufacturer has shut the machines down nationwide indefinitely. Anybody know anything about this? You think they will pay anyone back who can prove they played the machine?

I know nothing about any such glitch but feel that it is most likely that a casino started losing money on it and thats how the glitch was noticed.

Ameristar is a ruthless operation. It's a pretty sure bet they took losses and are not happy....

Its Roulette Evolution, and they sometimes have overheating issues and take weeks to fix while they wait for parts.

I got to test one of these machines in its early phases and it had so many glitches that it was laughable. I didn't test the final version, but it must have been much more solid than what I tested.
I heart Crystal Math.

They are probably just waiting for parts.

Last year a local casino had theirs down for a month. They're
getting better, but they run 24/7 and have a zillion moving parts.

The first day it was in operation, it gave the same number about 6 times in a row and had to be shut down for 24 hours.

Wait, you're talking about the IGT system? The same one that's in the MGM and Mandalay Bay?

No, the ones at MGM, Bellagio, Monte Carlo, and Mirage are the ones called, "Organic Roulette".
